Helping Can Hurt...

Here's an excellent article by Bob Lupton, a Christian community development leader in Atlanta, GA:

"The Dump People," by Bob Lupton

It's an excellent article, and a much needed reminder that sometimes our well-intentioned help can actually hurt more than it helps.  If you're involved in serving and loving the poor (and I hope you are), please take 5 minutes to read this short article and maybe even read When Helping Hurts, by Steve Corbett and Brian Fikkert.  It's well worth your time.
